It is important to keep your router upright in a central place, and high up on a shelf or table to ensure the strongest signal. Do not keep it hidden or too close to a concrete wall where it could be prone to interference.




WeCompare Tip: With every step taken away from the router, your signal gets weaker. To ensure the strongest signal for the entire house, take a broadband speed test in the same room as the router. Then, move further away, and test the internet speed again. If your speed test results is inconsistent, it could be that the router is too far away, or that it is being interfered with, so try and change its position.
